Back again!

And what happened in the meantime?
Oh well, seems nothing, but there’s been a lot going on πŸ™‚

Let’s start with some sort of never-ending-tale like moving house can be.
Jeez, moving all my things and moving the fleet has been quite a task. It took several weeks to be complete.

Hell, had to make a custom solution to store all the sisters.
So far it worked well in this way

Not too bad πŸ™‚

Uh, and yes there’s a new star there. By far the best bike I’ve ever had. Dario (Pegoretti) has done a fantastic job sizing up, crafting and decorating this MxxxxxO frame.
It is simply superb, an incredible combination of stiffness and comfort. It doesn’t glide like the (red) Supercorsa, it simply jumps like a spark out of the fireplace.

I am very proud of it.

Hello, sis. You’re not forgotten, we’re part of the same family with an obvious different soul and attitude πŸ™‚

Hello 2013!

New year, and already so much to do!
I’ve got plenty of good proposals, after all, would be worthless to get lazy unless having something to do, wouldn’t it? πŸ™‚

Apart from jokes, had some lovely time in Italy over Xmas. Meeting my parents, yes. Having some great food, oh yes. Catching with some friends and chaps hadn’t seen in a while, oh good! And some really good cycling, hell yeah! Forgot what it means to be on open, quiet roads in 2 miles away from home, and riding for long, and some decent climbing too.

Christmas day, glorious sunshine for a ride along the coast. Close to 20ΒΊ… ’nuff said!

Oh, and the 1st january 2013 was a nice -albeit cold- day. Good for a ride around town!

New Year, new timeline…..

Yup πŸ™‚

Just a few words to mention that from 2013 I’ll update this blog on a weekly basis, or even more.
I’ve tons of stuff to talk about, in my workshop there’s no room to rest, nor one gets bored.
’nuff said!

Updates will happen mainly on this Blog (Monstamechanic), which will get a lot more attention than the mirror one on Blogger.
Reason is simple, I don’t find myself comfortable enough on the Blogger interface, furthermore the WordPress interface is the same used in the BDC-Forum.it, where I do post a lot.
It is a lot easier for me to copy/paste in the same interface BDC-forum–>Wordpress; rather then write everything from scratch. The Txt/Html interface too, feels better in WordPress than the Blogger one..

So, keep an eye, there will be interesting stuff ! πŸ™‚

pity I didn’t made a pic of

this sunday ride!

Weather was good, for a change!
(honestly, I do miss the everyday sun in Sardinia!)

So there was no excuse for not going out this morning. And I waited too much, I’d say!

The red Supercorsa was riding like a dream. It’s amazing, I do feel like I’m the king on the road. It’s aplomb is unique between my other bikes, is just so different! I bet is due to the long-ish wheelbase, and the fairly short stem gives it a nippy ride. And the road feels so smooth, I could have ridden it for hours and hours πŸ˜€

And, oh! The Record 8 speed groupset works SO well that is such a pleasure to go on the down tube on the shifters, and the CLUNK is solid and flawless. And the chain makes that perfect little noise that seems to be riding a quiet Swiss clock….

Pure pleasure! πŸ™‚

Hello world!

Another page, another wall of codes hidden behind the screen, all to make more pages, more people to know, more rants, more time on this 7-yrs-old laptop with a keyboard that’s going blank in more than one key….

Really, sure do you want to hear about me?

I may just paste what’s on MySpace, sounds pretty good even after a couple of years…. (duh, haven’t changed that much?? :\ )

”Β You may know me as a Veggie crazy bike-addicted and Anime fanatic.
Or for the love of Veg Sushi & Japanese food and art?
Or maybe for the love of girls with Red hair and High heels?
And I really like red wine, Leffe and Gulden Draak beer
And, sometimes, to dance easy stuff in Alkt Clubs (still my music taste can be quite selective!), ’cause, yeah, sometimes I like to go out, Clubbing ’til late, but I hate the journey back home….! :-\ Β “

And more ’bout….
